Join me on Wednesday, February 26th for Fashion Meets Art (FMA) 2020 at the Vero Beach Museum of Art (VBMA) as I fundraise in style. 2020 marks year three of this annual fundraising event. I founded FMA in 2018 to raise funds for the VBMA’s award-winning programs for children and adults and have served as Co-Chair for three years running.

This year Hal Rubenstein, best selling author, designer and one of the founding editors of InStyle magazine, where he served as Fashion Director for fifteen years, will headline our event. Hal will regale you with his unique observations on style, fashion, beauty and culture.  He is well known for his beautiful and intelligent books about fashion and

I met with Hal at Sardi’s in NYC during Fashion Week in September to start making plans for this fun-filled afternoon. Tickets are available online at for this annual fundraising event.

Three of Hal’s books will be for sale on February 26th at the VBMA courtesy of the Vero Beach Book Center. A 10% donation per book sold will be bounced back to the VBMA. Hal has been kind enough to autograph bookplates for each book sold.

100 Unforgettable Dresses

100 Unforgettable Dresses is filled with the stories, secrets, intrigue and insights behind the most indelible dresses in our collective memories. Also featured throughout are extensive anecdotes and observations about great style makers – Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

The Looks of Love

The Looks of Love: 50 Moments in Fashion That Inspired Romance provides a fascinating look through the dual lens of fashion and film. Hal explores the union of love and fashion in fifty fully illustrated, entertaining stories highlighting landmark moments in style from movies and television, music and advertising – from the runways to contemporary culture.

Walls of Change

Walls of Change: The Story of the Wynwood Walls (released 11.23.19 at the Miami International Book Fair) is one of the change through passion, art and community. When Tony Goldman stumbled upon the expanse of stock warehouse buildings in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood, he saw a blank canvas. Hal has collaborated with Tony’s daughter, Jessica Goldman Srebnick, now the curator of the Wynwood Walls, with a book to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of this renowned cultural phenomenon.
